Hi, everyone.

In case you are unaware, Florida is home for myself and several other Convention Scene staff members. We now have Hurricane Irma bearing down on us this weekend, so I may be offline until Tuesday or later as I make preparations for the storm.

Stay safe out there, and we’ll see you on the other side (of the storm, that is).
